Listen to this Catholic priest who argues on Fox that opponents of gay marriage are now the victimized ones, the oppressed ones. What is amazing is that he thinks it is unfair and outside the bounds of civilized debate to characterize certain views as bigotry while at the same time he thinks nothing of referring to people as sinners. And even though many religious people believe that sinners go to hell where they face everlasting torment, that is supposed to perfectly acceptable to say.
No one is suppressing the right of people to express opposition to same sex marriage or whatever views they want. What has changed is that they no longer can say things like that without pushback. The days are gone when wearing a collar backwards gave you the privilege of saying the most absurd things without fear of challenge, as if some theological training gave you deep expertise on how people should live their lives, and whose verdicts should be accepted unquestioningly.
Now they have to be ready to deal with the rough and tumble of political discourse and they just can’t handle it.
